    Love the Darkyn

    I just love Val and I felt so terrible for him after reading Thierry's story in Private Demon. But not to worry because Val meets Liling in his story and she is a perfect match for him. I loved her character development. However, I didn't really like Val doing a 180 on me and showing this crazy dominating side. It wasn't what I was expecting and I wasn't terribly thrilled by it. But it was still good, and that obviously fit Liling's personality. Also, the ending with Alex's brother, John, made me want to scream. The Darkyn series is continually getting better and I'm sad it will be coming to an end so soon.

    Recommended Read

    You will understand this book more if read as part of the series, since Viehl is advancing her story line of the battle with the Brethren throughout the books. However, she adds enough back story that it could be read as a stand alone.Twilight Fall is more intense, and the drama of Liling vs her twin Kane kept me reading way past my bedtime. The focus here was not so much Darkyn vs Brethren as is was the Brethren vs their little kiddie experiments. Liling ran away as a teen from the Brethren training facility after being separated from her twin brother, Kane. Liling's 'special power' is healing and pain relief 'omg walking Oxycontin!', as well as the element of Fire. Kane can control water to the point that he can use it to track someone's passage through it, even in large lakes. He can kill by drawing the water out of a person, leaving them a dusty corpse. Together, their powers clash create monster storms, necessitating their separation. The Brethren told Kane that Liling wanted nothing to do with him, which pissed him off to the point that he now wants to kill Liling. Liling eventually settles as the gardener at the same medical facility watched over by suzerain Valentin Jaus, where they meet. When her picture shows up in newspapers across the country, thus bringing her back to the attention of the Brethren, she is forced to flee for her life with the help of Jaus. As a sci-fi/ fantasy series, the book is fascinating. Dr Alexandra Keller's medical experiments in trying to unlock the mystery of the Darkyn brings out the nerd in me. However, I dislike the fact that Brethren are largely one-dimensional super evil people who are trying to rid the world of the Darkyn for no explicable reason. There is no real depth with Viehl's characters they're almost cartoonish in their classification of Good or Evil. The most compelling of her characters is Alex's brother John, who is struggling between what he was taught of the church, what he has seen, and his own desires of the flesh. He has been present thus far mostly as a side story, although the ending of Twilight would suggest that he is about to take center stage. Overall, I'd give this book 4 out of 5, and say that I like Viehl's Stardoc series much better. *high pitched, wild fangurl squees for Stardoc series*

    A powerful romantic fantasy suspense thriller

    In Chicago at the Lighthouse Rehabilitation Center, local Darkyn chieftain Valentine Jaus comes to see patient Luisa Lopez, but sees staff gardener Liling Harper visiting the woman. Liling fantasizes that Val makes love to her with he being her Master. Val is attracted to the Chinese-American, but she makes him think about the woman he loved Jema Shaw who is now the lifemate of Thierry Durand.-------- The Chicago City News photographer gets a great shot of the beautiful gardens and the back of the gardener showing a red swan tattoo. The picture is placed in the Lifestyle Section and soon goes national. Chicago Archbishop August Hightower recognizes the tattoo though he had thought the Red Swan was dead. He wants her dead before she reveals what she knows about his operations. Meanwhile he also learns that Kyan has left China to kill the Red Swan.----------- Liling learns of her fame she plans to change identities, fly to Atlanta and drive to Texas. However, she cannot get a flight anywhere out of the city until morning. Val offers to fly her on his private jet as he is going to Atlanta anyway. She accepts. As they fly on his plane and join the Mile High Club, Kyan follows her via his watery skills. When they crash in the Everglades, Kyan hires Chinese-American Melanie Wallace as his interpreter while he rents a boat in the Everglades to get to Liling.------------------ The concept of a ¿war¿ between the Darkyn and the Brethen comes across very strongly in this powerful romantic fantasy suspense thriller. The lead pair is an interesting coupling as she has special healing skills that enhance his Darkyn abilities, which they will need as Kyan is a powerful individual with a deep personal grudge against Liling. Although TWILIGHT FALLS is a stand alone, subplots from previous tales continue (see NIGHT LOST and IF ANGELS BURN) the saga it behooves newcomers to get the backlist. Lynn Viehl provides a character driven entry in her latest Darkyn tale.------------------ Harriet Klausner
